Our full-time tuition fees for UK and EU students, entering University, can be found on the student finance page. These fees are charged for each academic year of a course and are set by the college annually.
If you are an international student or for the latest information on tuition fees visit the student finance page on our website.
For practical sessions at the equestrian centre, learners are expected to purchase their own uniform (yard wear – as specified by the Equestrian Centre in joining instructions).
As identified previously, students are required to undertake a work placement in a location of their own choosing. The responsibility of finding a suitable placement lies with the student who is also responsible for any related financial requirements.
Students also have the option to undertake a secondary qualification. The training fees for the first qualification are paid for by the college and payment of the examination fee is the responsibility of the student. If students wish to undertake more than one secondary qualification, they may do so but will need to pay the training fees in addition to the examination fee.
